Prothrombin complex concentrate for reversal of vitamin K antagonist treatment in bleeding and non-bleeding patients | Cochrane

Prothrombin complex concentrate (PCC) is a drug that contains a source of proteins involved in the human blood clotting process. Patients medicated with vitamin K antagonists (blood thinning drug) have low blood levels of these important blood clotting proteins. Therefore these patients will be at increased risk of spontaneous and traumatic bleeding events. Also, when these patients experience a bleeding event, this will lead to progressive loss of these important blood clotting proteins. This process causes a vicious circle, thereby increasing risks of illness and death.

To scan or not to scan - Part two: Answers and a summary of literature

If you recall from my previous post we were considering when to get a head CT on a pediatric patient with a closed head injury, and specifically how to approach this with the family. In general I find that its best to be honest and discuss the criteria outlined in the Kuppermann article (you know the one). It investigated risk of CT documented clinically important TBI (ciTBI) in children. A ciTBI is one that lead to death, neurosurgical intervention, stay in the hospital for >2 days and intubation for ≥24 hours. The population split between <2 and >2 years of age.
